Neighbors - Raising the Roof

on student assets!  
Where ALL students are UNIQUE and WONDERFULLY MADE!

Today is Raising Student Assets Thursday!

I am so excited to be back for Positive Actions today, Nov. 16th! As we continue to improve our positive thoughts, actions and feelings, today we will take a look at raising student assets and a super important positive action word:

NEIGHBORS

Tell your teacher what you think the word "NEIGHBOR" means.
"a person living near or next door"

Neighbors.  What do "neighbors" look like?  If we look with positive hearts, we may discover a neighbor really does care!  Watch this video:




"Sometimes the last thing you want to do for somebody ought to be the first. In "Neighbors," the creators wanted to portray a person who, in many ways, wasn't "deserving" of help. The character of Edna is a grouchy person. Yet the mother has taught her daughter the important lesson that their job as neighbors is to help out, without an expectation that their good gesture would be equally reciprocated."

Think of a "neighbor" in your classroom?  Tell your teacher how you can show them a positive action at school.

Now, think of a "neighbor" at home.  Do you have a neighbor that is cranky, like Edna?  (I do!)  How can you show Positive Actions to others that are not always positive?  Like our good neighbors, some need a little extra PATIENCE.  Share a story about a time when YOU needed to be patience with a friend or neighbor.

Finally, are YOU ever a cranky Edna?  What can we do to share Positive Actions with others?

And remember, it is also important to know that here at Warm Springs Intermediate School, we are all part of a "cougar community" where the most important friend is...


YOU!

Cougars that are positive NEIGHBORS can change the world!
